is a 28-will blog your -- 28- year-old logger -- blogger from egypt. the city offered him refuge for one year. the idea was to give him some breathing room and time to feel safe again. his first impressions involved pigeons like these. >> it is not like this in egypt. pigeons do not just come and sit on your hand. in egypt, birds are wary of humans. poles are not like the egyptians are. i have never seen anything like this there. >> a polish club is letting him use an apartment in this district in the west of the city. he updates his blog from here. those who can speak arabic and read what he writes soon begin to understand why he faces problems back home. this afternoon, his message is stark -- islam poses a threat to humanity. especially in the west, a fear of islam should be a normal reaction, just like the fear of falling under the wheels of a moving train. >> that is what i think. i am an atheist. in egypt, everything has become worse under the muslim brotherhood. as far as i'm concerned, there is no moderate islam. osama bin laden was the true face of islam. >> surely the situation
the suburbs are killing the sand here is why and cities can save us and here is why. by far the greatest aspect of that epidemic or i should say of our health challenge in america is the obesity epidemic, not that obesity itself is a problem but all the illnesses it leads to, diabetes consumes 2% of our gross national product. a child born after 2000 has a one in three chance in america becoming a diabetic. we are looking at the first generation of americans who are going to live shorter lives than their parents. that is not a huge surprise to you. we of all been talking for a long time about the wonders of the american corn syrup based diets and the sodas people a drinking but only recently has the argument, have studies been done comparing diet and physical inactivity, one of them in england was called gluttony vs loss. another doctor at the mayo clinic put patients electronic underwear and measured every motion, set a certain dietetic regime, studied their weight, started pumping calories in and some people got fat and other people didn't, expecting some sort of metabolic factor at wo
of tunis, shops and businesses were boarded up. the general strike has brought the city to a standstill. >> for more on this, we are joined now live by our correspondent who is standing by in tunis. the clashes we have been seeing look especially fierce. what is the situation right now? >> clashes erupted earlier this afternoon. the situation is anxious. the situation is still unclear. it is not clear how it will evolve on the political end either. at the moment, tunisia is really not knowing what will happen in the next few days. >> what do you think? how is the crisis likely to play out given the tensions between ultra-conservative moslem groups on the one hand and secularists on the other in tunisia? >> it seems it might actually lead to not a second revolution, but it might lead to a reconstruction of the political landscape in tunisia, especially as democratic forces have been divided for the last couple of years are finally working together. there's a chance that the democratic process might find a good way to come together. >> thanks so very much. as tunisian deals with the fallo
flights in and out of boston. while the worst of the storm has yet to hit, many businesses and cities were busy making prarations today. erika ller repor. >> reporter: this monstrous storm is already being compared to the great blizzard of '78, when vast amounts of snow blanketed the ohio valley and the great lakes. that storm lasted 36 hours, leaving cars stranded. this storm could also be historic. weather forecasters predict it will leave up to three feet of snow in a wide swath stretching from new york to boston. preparations are well underway. airlines cancelled nearly 4,500 flights, leaving many travelers stranded. >> here at laguardia, as you can see, our port authority men and women are hard at work preparing for the storm. our fleet of snow removal vehicles and sand and agent spreaders are prepped and ready for action. >> reporter: amtrak has also canceled many trips in the northeast. the storm is expected to deliver a harsh blow to areas of the east coast still recovering from superstorm sandy. >> hurricane sandy cost the economy a $100 billion and the recovery efforts are still
economies and more specifically, city economies. similarly we talk about manufacturing as a category, that's a little overbroad because manufacturing is a million subcategories that added to this pos or ble category. so the same way you broke down and said here's the specific cities do well and can have lessons for the american economy in the aggregate, what are some subset is right now that is a leading-edge the rest of the super sector came learn from? >> just a pretty fine point on your initial comment, top mattress in the united states said on 12% of land ask him a two of population, three quarters of gdp and on every asset that matters, 75, 80, 85% national share. so it's really hard to talk about an american economy. you really have to talk about network throughout the rest of the world. for a long time we focused a lot on the consumption economy in a wal-mart is that wal-mart is a wal-mart about whether phoenix, pittsburgh, denver, detroit. same footprint, seem designed, same price as, wages. when you start looking at advanced manufacturing, what you see is the effective cost areas
: in new york city and elsewhere, preparations are being made for clean-up. >> we have more than 250,000 tons of salt on hand. >> reporter: according to the long island power authority, the storm has the potential to cause power outages for 100,000 customers on long island. and for the first time ever, lipa is deferring storm operations and response to its subcontractor, national grid. but in manhattan today, it was mostly business as usual, although many workers did try to leave early to beat the snow. and if the snowfall is anywhere close to the storm of '78, you'll see the impact in economic data in the weeks ahead. >> usually major storms cause increased volatility in economic data. so, that jobless claims jump significantly in the beginning as government offices close, because of the storm. and they surge back up after the offices reopened. >> reporter: if there's a silver lining in this storm, it's the timing. the heaviest snowfall will happen over the weekend. and the clean-up is expected well before valentines day, which contributes $18 billion to the economy. erika miller,
taste of hollywood glamour as the city hosts its annual film festival. this time it's a politically charged u.s. film about the controversial practice of fracking that's drilling a lot of interest and probably didn't hurt that the film's star matt damon was on hand to discuss the matter. >> on day two of the berlin film festival hollywood descended on the festival. matt damon was the biggest name. >> if you sign this lease it gives us the right to work on your land. >> in order to get at the natural gas reserves underneath. >> you could be a millionaire. >> grapple with the dilemma whether to take the money or stick with their traditional ways. >> the town is going to put it to a vote in three weeks. >> what we really wanted to do was make a movie about american identity and the actual issue itself was secondary to wanting to explore the kind of where we are right now. >> for damon this is a project close to his heart. he wrote the screen play and wanted to direct the film. but with so many deadlines looming he passed that job on to van zant. they had already worked together on good
that a chinese man made the simple mistake of driving a japanese car in a chai neads city of chian and was beat sewn badly he is paralyzed. this week, a chinese minister accused a japanese vessel of target i targeting the radar on a japanese ship off of the islands, but the chinese officials are disputing it happened. now think about this, the world's second and the third largest economies playing chicken in the pacific over a dispute of uninhabited islands, but if this diplomatic disagreement were to escalate into a military obligation, the united states would be obligated by the 52-year-old treaty obligation to help the sovereignty of japan, and does that mean that north korea would come to the aid of china, but it is a quaint and admittedly alarmist experiment, because that is not how foreign wars are conducted anymore. next month marks the 10-year invasion of iraq, and the last conflict that we can think of conventional war that claimed the lives of more than 4,000 americans and by some counts more than 110,000 iraqis, all because of the bush administration's false claim that iraq had weapo
